Since my last blog I’ve begun to think that the battle with modern technology can leave me drained! On return from our holiday in the Dales we discovered the Broadband was down and it took a lengthy phone call to get the provider to realise we needed a new router (box of signals to the un-initiated). This arrived quickly but then the printer wouldn’t speak to anything, I never liked it anyway so I bought a new one. This worked fine the first day but on the second it wouldn’t talk with my PC so a ‘chat-line’ call with the technician in control of my PC put that right.
So I was more than ready to get back into the studio (back bedroom) to attempt some new work both printing and stitching. The image shows 3 collagraph plates waiting to be inked and pressed and some textile and felt pieces that need free-motion embroidery and hand stitch.
They don’t look like much at the moment but I have to keep reminding myself that these pieces as they are now are only the background and with stitch on top they should look a lot better.
Shall we see and I’ll show you next blog how they turned out – rubbish or not?
